  • Krista Aoki: Krista’s blog was one of the most inspirational helpful ones that I found starting out! She has great income reports with a ton of great information! If you are confused on affiliate marketing, she is a great blog to check out! She broke it all down in a very simple way!! You cannot go wrong with any of her posts (I took notes on all of them)!


  • Jessica Slaughter: Jessica’s blog was another one of the first blogs I found when I was looking to start a blog. She has sooooo many resources for everything in the blog world from coding to monetizing to social media and more!! I have her page bookmarked so anytime I need help with my blog, I can go look at hers!



  • Helene in Between: Helene’s blog, in general, is amazing (I’m slightly obsessed), but her blogging section is just perfect! Anything you need can be found and she also has a free blogging E-course! Trust me just check out her blog, you will not regret it!



  • The Blog Market: This blog is a one stop shop for literally allll your blogging needs! I check it out on a regular basis (take notes on their posts) and it’s half the reason my blog is where it is today!


  • I also write many tips + tricks for blogging! If you’re looking to start a blog, but have a small budget check out this post!



Go Self Hosted:

  • A2 Hosting: I use A2 hosting and I love it! I’ve never once had a problem with them and they have 24/7 support chat (which I’ve used manyyyy times). I’ve noticed that my site loads super fast and (of course) it is wordpress optimized. It starts at only $3.92/month & if you’re not ready to make a huge commitment you can just pay month-to-month!!! I will sing praises fo A2 Hosting till the grave! They saved me last week when I messed up my blog code and lost access to everything, seriously you gotta check them out!!
  • SiteGround: SiteGround is one of the most popular hosting sites! It starts at $3.95/month. If A2 Hosting is not for you I highly recommend checking SiteGround out!
  • BlueHost: BlueHost is yet another one of the most popular hosting sites! I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve heard many good things about it. BlueHost also starts at $3.95/month!

Get a Theme:

  • You do not need to pay a ton of money for a theme! I spent something like $3o on mine, but you can find them for even less (some good ones are only $2!!!). I highly recommend checking out Creative Market to start out, they have a huge variety of themes for every budget.

Create Graphics + Images:

  • I’m assuming that you do not have an unlimited budget to start your blog, just like I did! I started this blog spending less than $80 and a huge part of that is because of Canva. It is the best FREE website to create graphics, you can pay around $13/month for a business account, but you don’t need to. Any of the images you see here were more than likely created on Canva!
  • VSCO
  • SnapSeed
